The Other YOU
YOU MAY BECOME CONFUSED and not understand when told that you are an integral part of the ‘One Universal Consciousness’… Wow! How could someone so insignificant and ordinary as you be a part of something so vast. The reason this revelation is so difficult to comprehend is that there is another you.
Firstly there’s the ‘overt’ (known) you, the ego, the little you, the physical you. This you has a name and a body. This is the you that you think of as being who you are. This is the you that is confused and disbelieving at the revelation of your Oneness with Universal Consciousness.
Then there is the ‘covert’ (unknown) You, the Soul, the Big You, the Spiritual You. This is the You that is experiencing Itself as the Universe. Although this You is hidden from your everyday awareness, it’s still a strong, compassionate underlying force that subtlety guides you along certain pathways.
We dream up the illusion of separation from our Oneness so as to feel
what it would be like… to see what it could teach us, and to experience the exhilaration
of awakening within the dream.
Because of the gift of free will, your ‘overt’ ego self always has the choice of being either happy or sad, good or bad etc. You can go this way or that way at any time… you figure it out as you go. There’s not one right path… and by the way, there’s no one there to judge you or take score.
Your free will allows you the choice of changing your life situation at any time, for better or for worse… to a certain extent at least, which is okay, for your changing life situations only adds to the contrasting and diverse experiences that the ‘covert’ Big You loves to have.
There is a compulsion within you to always want to transcend yourself and the reason for this is the subtle, ‘covert’ force of the Spiritual You, which understands you completely and recognizes the potential you have as it gently urges you onward towards your inevitable, glorious perfection…
Dan’s Quote: “The ego self is not who you really are,
____________it’s the mechanism through which the Universe is experienced.”

is worth getting up for an early start…. there’s no doubt about that!
